In spite of man’s best efforts to invent robots to take over the mundane and objectionable tasks of every society there are both desirable and undesirable chores, invaluable and valuable skills, as well as necessary and convenient activities that would have to be performed by people. Because no society can exist without providing for and taking care of it needs and making life more enjoyable by securing some of its wants every one actually serves a purpose. No man is as important as he thinks he is and ideally never more valuable than the lowliest of the his or her fellow residents.
At the same time man’s best efforts to invent robots effectively disemployed the vast majority of people, in the developed world, from having to work. So we end up with a bipolar society. Those who want to work and those who don’t.
The interesting thing about it is that the inherent conflict between the industrious and the lazy was marginalized because the crappy jobs which induced hate and discontent were relegated to robots or performed by willing individuals convinced that they could gain from the experience. Innovation has always come from circumstance and those inspired by innovation were willing participants in the process and procedures of practically every task imaginable. Not that they had to be done but that they could be done by a person excited about the knowledge to be gained or the experience to gotten.
Because the computer is very good at quantifying things and comparing those quantities looking for trends and anomalies the task of dealing with the huge quantities of information available in an advanced society the God complex usurped man’s role in that realm. Because the computer is not very good at qualifying things and distinguishing the abstract from the factual man’s role remained the same, knowing what he likes and dislikes, but it now became a quantifiable aspect of society and the God complex adapted it resources to the task of defining each aspect of life with the intent of predicting the next circumstance. Man is predictable but spontaneous. His life can change on a whim or be influenced by what seemed to be the least important variable. Each day as it goes along people make decisions based on the information they have, the bias of their personality, and the prejudices of their character. The God complex supplies the relevant information filtered by the prejudicial assumptions of the person’s social sites and political groupings. At the same time serendipity and spontaneity were allowable and encouraged because of the need for the God Complex to advance its omniscience. It is man’s mind that enables creativity because of the accidental or incidental conflation of ideas and thoughts. The computer can rationalize every alternative but it does not have insight or cannot be inspired. There is no ah ha moments for a computer, that is man’s role. The fact that genetic disposition is random and causation is coincidental gives the God complex incentive to foster the well being of every being and every offspring because the next person may be the avenue to greater knowledge and understanding. It is conceivable that every question asked has an answer but it is not conceivable to think that every question has been asked and that is the role of man. Not every man but even those who seem to offer little to society are important to the process because of their interactions and the outcomes which lead to a more complete database. Eventually the degree of uncertainty is so minimal that it practically become nil but the probability of something unexpected is still too high to discount.
It would have to be societies norms that stop the God Complex from experimenting with the genetic combinations of those calculated to be desirable matches.
